Short Row Knits: A Master Workshop with 20 Learn-as-You-Knit Projects

We rated this book:


Many have had the experience of receiving a lovely sweater, carefully hand made by a beloved grandmother or aunt. The yarn is lovely and soft, the stitching even and complex but still it looks as if she had used a cardboard box as a dress form. Wouldn’t it be great if that knitter had learned a method to put curves into the knitted fabric allowing the finished garment to fit a person nicely? Well, this book is just the ticket for advanced knitters who wish to make garments that drape, flow, and contour in ways that will make both the knitter and the recipient happy.

The twenty projects in the book are completely explained with photographs, instructive drawings, and specifically-written patterns. The methods explained are Wrap & Turn, Japanese Short Row, Yarn-Over Short Row, and German Short Row. The three sections — Short Row Techniques, Short Row Shaping, and Short Rows in Garments, each include instructive sections such as Basic Shapes or Shaping Bust Darts as well as multiple projects using what the section teaches.

Author Carol Feller is a designer and teacher who has published three other books on knitting and has created more than 100 patterns published elsewhere.
